Hello Brent

Good to hear from you again :-) when you say good restaurants you need to be more specific for me....is your top priority food over view? As usually especially for me in Agios the best food doesn't have the best views - so do let me know :-)

Hi Brent,

Personally, I've never found great food in Frangokastello, just generic tourist stuff (& seriously do not go to the place opposite the main beach car park entrance - dreadful!), but there are several good tavernas in Hora Sfakia - I like Nikos & The 3 Brothers.

I know how well you plan, so I'm sure you know Frangokastello is not a city - not even a village really, just some rental rooms spread along the road near the beach. it's a lovely beach but that's all, so good if you just want beach time relaxation.

Hora Sfakia is close enough to drive for dinner correct?

Hi again

Ok my recommended for Agios would Paradosiako it is a meze taverna.....gets very busy on the weekends so I would book as it's very popular with the locals - it's also excellent value for money - we usually pay around 25 euros for the two of us - including wine and water , we usually have 5 dishes between us - and you always get a huge free pud as well as a bottle of raki too
